Yes, it is enough. Use an appropriately tough SN bullet, not just any soft, but that goes for any caliber.

Must be because the only one I’ve had the opportunity to shoot died. Hopefully I’ll get another chance to try it again.

The .375 H&H with premium 300g + bullets (both expanding and solids) is completely fine for Cape Buffalo.



Just practice enough and be able to shoot it well before going to Africa. Shoot it enough so that you know your solids and expanding bullets impact in the same place at 100 yards (or meters).

CM,
That is nice work! I would like that cartridge slide for 50-110 Win. I would also use it for 500 S&W. Six cartridge loops would be perfect for me.

I will send you payment immediately.

Thank you,
